And once more, I am smitten with beautiful wreaths!
Not only do I love Suzanne’s beautiful Ruffled Dropcloth Wreath
But I love the Spring Wreath that inspired her!
Mary Sullivan Frasier at Go Ahead…Take A Bite!
Project: Pork Chops Pizziola
Have you ever wondered if there’s any truth to the old adage
“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”?
Prince Charming – our recipe picker for the week – says yes!
He fell head over heels for Mary’s Pork Chops Pizziola recipe,
Saying, “It has all of the makings for a fabulous dish!”
Well done Mary – Prince Charming does not dole out praise lightly!
Adrienne at Happy Hour Projects
Project: Book Page Bracelet
If you love books and unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry
Be sure to share your passions with the world
By making your own Book Page Bracelet
Following Adrienne’s instructions!
Kaylee at Couponing And Cooking
Recipe: Peppermint Patty Cupcakes
Cupcakes – Yum!

Combine the two and what do you get?

I have missed being here for a couple of weeks. I can’t be here as much because of some issues at work, but I hope I can see a couple of blogs.
I’ve missed you too but I understand busy! Even when you don’t have time to post, do feel free to leave a comment and let me know you’ve stopped by! 🙂
Have a wonderful week!
I don’t think my SO loves me for my cooking, but he definitely benefits. He eats like a king, because I love to cook, and I like to eat great food. I have no problem spending money on food, but material things -yes. Except for plants. I would say I spend more money on my garden every year than I spend on myself in three years. Yup…Do you see a psycho pattern of some kind here? lol Just teasing. Let’s see if I can think up something inspiring and link up. Hope you have a great Monday.
Thanks for the chuckle Amanda – hope you have a fabulous week and I look forward to seeing what you come up with! 🙂
